This year’s event was on the second weekend of July – but in 2018 it will move forward.

May Bank Holiday is to be the new date, and Prestfest is due to be a combination of outdoor concerts on the Flag Market as well as day-time events in a variety of venues.

Most events will be free or a low-ticket price.


This year’s concert was headlined by Tom Zanetti and Fatman Scoop.

Prestfest will run from Friday 4 May to Sunday 6 May.
